Rosa “Rose” Jane Watson was born on March 26, 1934, to parents Walter E. Berry and Edith M. (Terrell) Berry. She was reborn as a child of God in the waters of Holy Baptism on July 31, 1960. On that same day she was confirmed in the Christian faith and fed the life-giving body and blood of Jesus. She was united in holy marriage to Daniel E. Watson on December 26, 1953, and they were blessed with 43 ½ years of married life together. God also blessed them with the gift of children Cheryl and Danene. On September 24, 2020, God called Rosa home to heaven.
She is survived by her daughters, Cheryl L. Watson and Danene J. (Kenny) Stroud; eight grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; sister, Georgia (Donald) Shively; and sister-in-law, Judy Berry. She was preceded in death by her husband Daniel, one grandchild, one great-grandchild, her parents and two brothers. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away: blessed be the name of the Lord. We give thanks to God our Father through Jesus Christ, our Lord for our Mother, Rosa.
